>Spare Change

>

Old
Friends, Family, Faith
jaded
experiences and circumstances
“tragedy” and new life
colors and crispness increases
seasons change
snow, if for a while
pencils breaking, hands shaking
end, New.
Life can change abruptly.  When you start the semester everything seems like it will break, and then the leaves begin to change color and it all changes.  I wrote this poem to describe a fall semester.  Things often have a dual meaning, which is reflected above, because in the end change has to happen to make room for new life. It really is amazing how inspirational college can be for poetry, I believe this fits a lot of people, whereas in my previous blog that poem concerned me on a personal level.
